Ok, well, not exactly. A vampire and fairy hybrid child is not on the way, not unless we have all warped into some bizarre True Blood dimension. The truth is that two of the stars from True Blood have just found out that they are having a baby. Co-stars and real-life married couple fairy Sookie and vampire Bill, known in real life as Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, are expecting their first child together. Their romance sparked on set when Paquin and Moyer met while filming the sexy HBO show in 2007; the couple later married in August 2010 in a Malibu ceremony.
Moyer has two children from a previous relationship, but this is Paquin's first pregnancy. Congrats to the happy couple!
Now, not to damper the happy mood with negativity – BUT – what is going to happen to True Blood? The upcoming Season 5 is already filmed and ready to come to us bloodthirsty fans this summer. But what about Season 6? I know I am jumping the gun here, I mean, we don’t even know if there will be a Season 6 yet (we probably will if the ratings stay up). If there is a sixth season though will it be delayed by Paquin’s pregnancy? Some of my most favorite of shows were put on hiatus for months and months due to a main cast member getting pregnant, I wonder if the same will happen with True Blood. In a show with that much nudity I seriously doubt they can hide the fact that Sookie is pregnant.
Ah well, I guess we will just have to wait and see what the fate of the show is. Now back to the happiness – Congrats to two of our most beloved True Blood stars, we wish you a smooth and blissful pregnancy!
The fifth season of True Blood returns June 10.
